The pain in back, down the leg is at it's worst. It all started 18yrs ago when I had a prolapsed disc op which went wrong. this was followed by a metal Fusion and plastic fibre discs to L3/4/5.
After tense machine and a dorsal column stimulater which did not work, they decided to fit me with a Synchromed Pump in the stomach and a catheter in the back dripping Dia-Morphine into the Spinal Chord itself.
Anyway, this worked for 4yrs till the battery in the machine went and to my dismay (at the time) was told they they can't take it out as it's too dangerous.
They then put me on massive dosses of Morphine and 15 other drugs to take on a daily basis.
So here I am with extreme pain still and mentally affected by all this medication which is not helping much on the pain side. Every Dr/Specialist I've seen recently does not want to touch me as they DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW!!
All they keep saying is that I should carry on taking the pills as this is the best option, surely not? There must be someone out there can help me as I'm at my wits end and Extremely Depressed and walking around like a Zombie ( according to my wife and kids).
